Scion Executive Search –Washington, D.C. Executive Search Firm

Scion’s Washington D.C. Executive Search Firm utilizes our socially conscious approach to rigorously vet leadership candidates on our clients’ behalf, to deliver ideal executives and management. Washington D.C. is a city containing the ultimate global powers and yet belonging to no U.S. state, without voting representation in the House of Representatives and without any representation at all in the Senate, Washington, D.C. is a city like no other.

Situated beside the Potomac River and bordering the states of Maryland and Virginia—which in fact donated the land it sits on today—Washington, D.C. is chock full of neoclassical, Georgian, and gothic buildings and monuments to the nation’s history and great leaders. Hundreds of thousands of people have gathered in front of the Lincoln Memorial to advocate for civil rights, women’s rights, human rights, and more. Meanwhile, life-changing and nation-changing bills have been ratified into law and monumental decisions made in the three iconic buildings housed in the city: the Capitol, the White House, and the Supreme Court.

Despite having a geographic area smaller than all fifty U.S. states and a population smaller than all but two U.S. states, Washington, D.C. has the ninth-largest television market in the nation. The city is also home to numerous media companies and cable television channels, including C-SPAN, NPR, BET, and Discovery. Georgetown University and Howard University are among Washington, D.C.’s higher education offerings and according to the U.S. Census Bureau, nearly 60% of residents aged twenty-five and higher have a college degree, with more than a quarter holding a graduate degree.

Scion’s Washington D.C. Executive Search firm serves local, national, and global newcomers and industry leaders alike with placements in our nation’s capital. Our commitment to being one of the top executive search firms in Washington D.C. shows through every impactful placement we make.

Current DEI Leadership Recruitment Trends

One of the keys to business success in the United States today is valuing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) practices and initiatives. Whether a business is newly establishing these or strengthening practices that have long been integral to its operations, one thing is certain: DEI matters. Consumers and business partners alike are asking in ever-increasing frequency for evidence of businesses’ meaningful DEI initiatives before determining whether to consume or partner with them. Employees and executives in increasing numbers, as well, want to know how a company is addressing DEI before deciding if they would like to work with or for it.
